IBM Partnership With VMware to Be a Game Changer for Cloud Security

At last week’s 2017 VMworld event, IBM Security General Manager Marc van Zadelhoff joined VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger on the main stage to announce a partnership aimed at bridging the gap between IT operations and security teams to respond faster and more effectively to security breaches.

IBM and VMware Join Forces for Cloud Security

As part of this partnership, VMware AppDefense, a new security product for locking down VMware-based applications and workloads, will be integrated directly into QRadar, IBM’s security analytics platform. IBM plans to deliver QRadar with AppDefense to customers, providing unmatched visibility and control into evasive and malicious activity across virtualized workloads.

Since Gartner expects that 90 percent of organizations will adopt hybrid cloud by 2020, it will be more important than ever for security teams to rapidly understand and respond to advanced threats through a single pane of glass, rather than disparate security tools.
